      What is Plantar Fasciitis?

      Plantar Fasciitis can cause stabbing pain to the heel of your foot with every step you take. This common condition affects the thick band of tissue that runs the length of your foot called the fascia.

      Physical stress and inflammation can make walking or standing difficult for long periods of time. Experiencing this kind of discomfort can be taxing on your physical and mental well-being, leaving you desperate for relief.

      Working with an experienced orthopedic doctor is key to getting your plantar fasciitis under control freeing you from pain and allowing you to resume more physical activity.

      What causes Plantar Fasciitis?

      It's common to experience some inflammation in your heels since most individuals are on their feet often. However, if your pain is a daily battle affecting your life, it’s time to see a specialist to get to the bottom of your pain and find a solution.

      There are a few reasons you may be experiencing plantar fasciitis that include:

      • Core weakness
      • Foot weakness
      • Lifestyle
      • Weight
      • Not wearing proper footwear
      • Flat feet
      • Your job requires walking on concrete all day or a similar active occupation
      • You are an active person who participates in long-distance running or similar activities

      What are the Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?

      If you are dealing with plantar fasciitis, you will most likely experience heel pain first thing in the morning or after being on your feet for a long time.

      Often plantar fasciitis will only affect one foot. You may not notice the pain while exercising; however, it may arise after.

      Additional symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:

      • Stabbing pain near the bottom of the foot
      • Pain at the arch of the foot or heel
      • Swelling of the heel
      • Tightness at the Achilles tendon
      • Increased pain after exercise
      • Pain that is worse in the morning

      If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, you may be dealing with plantar fasciitis. Don’t let foot pain keep you from doing the activities you love!
